I don't know if you can see that or not. It might not show it since its a graphics card problem. But there should be grey horizontal lines running through it all over the place.

I've narrowed the possible problems down to like the graphics card itself being messed up/broken and/or the drivers aren't properly installing.

I also tried to see if the monitor itself was messed up but it isn't because I tried it out on my laptop and the monitor looked perfect.

Yes I have tried various versions of the recommended and not recommended drivers directly from the Nvidia website but it always gives me the same error.

I can never seem to shake this thing and multiple people have had this very same problem but no one ever seem to leave a fix or a possible fix. Besides re-installing the drivers and etc, etc.

Hopefully what information I left here for you guys was helpful!

Thanks,

Lukas

First of all, you need to post ALL of your exact hardware specs ie the exact pw supply you have installed, what cpu is installed, exact memory installed, etc, etc.

Chances are that the graphics card is just faulty, driver issues shouldn't cause lines in the display and if if these lines show up as soon as you turn the computer on then it's definitely not a driver fault.

It's generally not that much hassle especially if it's within the 30 day period, if it's after that you can go to the manufacturer for warranty. If you don't use the warranty I don't think you should complain about money being wasted/down the toilet.

Its my own choice, I just value time more then most people.

I'd rather pay $100 and get a new one and have it working in a couple days then wait 2 weeks and possibly lose $3-4k from me not being able to work.

Thank you again for your help. :)
